Trash and Trevor: Trevor Ashley - Travels with my Scooter
I think the main difference between myself and other boys at high school was obvious. Puberty kicked in and I realised that there was something that set me apart from others, something that made them "normal" and me not. In Year Seven it wasn’t so bad, because at that time it was something you dreamed about, but it wasn't legal. It was forbidden fruit. But, by Year Ten, the testosterone had kicked in and boys in my year were all buying motoring magazines, and I was reading Dolly. Yes, it's true. They all had a burning desire... to drive. And I did not. Most of them turned 16 and rushed straight to the RTA to get their learners, often on their birthday. I auditioned for roles at Rockdale Musical Society. By the time we reached Year Eleven and Twelve many of them drove to school. I was still stuck with my bus pass and a twenty minute walk from the stop. But it really didn't bother me. I eventually got my learners when I was almost 18, got in the car once to drive, hated it so much I never did it again writes Trevor Ashley in SX News.
